Mission Statement

The purpose of the Mount Clare Museum House is to preserve the circa 1760 historic house and its supporting collections and to engage the public with the late Colonial and early Federal periods of Maryland's history and lifestyles, while focusing on the historic figures who contributed to the history of Mount Clare. Mount Clare, a National Historic Landmark, was built by Charles Carroll, Barrister and his wife Margaret Tilghman. The National Society of the Colonial Dames of America in Maryland and the museum staff are dedicated to serving a diverse audience by carrying out the above goals through accurately interpreting the house and providing programs that offer a variety of learning experiences and enhanced educational opportunities to all visitors.
